Mirrors? Have you seen it? Did you Like It?

I have, and I thought it was pretty good. Original.

Let me start off by saying: I was stoked about seeing Mirrors. I liked High Tension, and I loved Hills Have Eyes. Both were awesome, awesome movies….especially Hills Have Eyes. So of course, again, I was stoked to watch Mirrors, because it sounded interesting, it looked scary, and the guy who made to great horror movies made it. What happened when I finished Mirrors, you ask? I was left disappointed as hell. Very, very disappointed. Which sucks because it started off so scary and so interesting.

Kiefer Sutherland plays Ben, a down and out ex-cop who’s battling an alcohol problem and the stigma of killing a man while in the line of duty. While waiting to be reinstated into the police force, he takes a job as a night watchmen at an old, burned down, creepy-ass shopping mall. Of course, once there, he notices insanely scary and creepy things going on inside, particularly with the mirrors inside. He starts seeing disturbing things in the mirrors: People burning alive, grotesque people lying on the floors, crying for help, things of that nature. Since Ben is so unstable, we’re not sure what’s going on, at least I wasn’t. I wasn’t sure if all this scary stuff was in his head, or if there was a genuine explanation for all of it. Well, I was wishing that the former was true, because that would’ve made the movie that much scarier and that much edgier. Instead, the latter was true.

The movie has some really, really scary parts….all of it is scary until they explain why everything’s happening. Then you’re just left there thinking, "Well, that’s not that scary anymore." There’s some really crazy gore effects, especially the opening scene and the scene with Amy Smart. These parts, especially the Amy Smart scene, will make you cringe just a little bit.

But after the first half, the half filled with mystery, intrigue, and scary, horrific moments, the movies take a turn down dumbass-idea boulevard:

SPOILER Ready for this? The reason for the all the strange happenings in the movie, i.e., in the mirrors, is because of…..ready?……demonic forces. No psychological reasons, which would’ve been cool and interesting, but because of stupid demonic forces that lived in the mirrors. Even if they didn’t go down the psychological route, they could’ve at least handled it better and made it interesting instead of just saying, "Bad s*** lives in the mirrors. Jack Bauer’s gonna take care of it." When his wife starts believing him and when you know for sure he isn’t just crazy and broken, that’s when all the interest is sucked away.

Everyone does a pretty good job with their roles, but since the movie doesn’t get any deeper than "Bad stuff lives in the mirrors," there’s not much to do with these characters, especially Ben, who’s a pretty broken and messed up guy. But as the second half comes along, you forget that he’s a recovering alcoholic with a pill problem who may or may not be completely insane. When there’s no more doubt about his state-of-mind and sanity, the movie loses it’s punch and mystery, at least I thought so.

SOME MORE SPOILERS The movie takes a turn for the absolutely ridiculous when all the demonic forces in the mirrors manifest themselves in an old nun. She pretty much turns into a freakin’ licker from the Resident Evil games. She starts crawling up walls, jumping off walls, and gets into a physical brawl with Kiefer Sutherland as he tries to shoot her. She throws him through a freakin’ brick wall, and he throws her like six feet away from him. I was just thinking to myself, "What the hell am I watching? Is it still the same movie?" This part was so stupid it pretty much ruined the rest of the movie. My God. It was so stupid.

I personally thought they could’ve done much more with the story instead of just saying "Bad things live in the mirrors." It started out scary, suspenseful, and frightening, but then just ends up being corny and stupid. The only thing that made the last half somewhat tolerable was the last few minutes, which was a little shocking and cool. Loved the ending.

But again, don’t take this review as a definitive view on the movie. Go watch it for yourself and you might end up liking it very much. I didn’t, even though I really, really wanted to.

Score: 5 out of 10.

Summary of stand by me movie?

not so little please

The film is narrated by an adult Gordie LaChance, known as "The Writer" (Richard Dreyfuss), writing the memoir about his youth. Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Oregon, over Labor Day weekend in September 1959, Gordie (Wil Wheaton), and his friends Chris Chambers (River Phoenix) and Teddy Duchamp (Corey Feldman) learn from their friend Vern Tessio (Jerry O’Connell) that the dead body of a boy named Ray Brower, who was struck by a train while picking blueberries in the woods, has not been found. While under his porch looking for his buried jar of pennies, Vern overheard his older brother talking about finding the body while in the woods with a friend. The boys then embark upon a two-day journey near Castle Rock to see and find the body.

Gordie is a quiet, bookish boy with a penchant for telling stories and writing, rejected by his father following the death of his football-star older brother Denny (John Cusack) in a Jeep accident. Chris is from a family of criminals and alcoholics and breaks the generational curse, he is usually stereotyped accordingly. Teddy is an eccentric and physically deformed after his mentally unstable father (whom Teddy sees as a war hero who "stormed the beach at Normandy") held his ear to a stove and nearly burned it off, thus forcing him to wear a hearing aid. Vern, overweight and timid, is easily scared, and thus often picked on.

Through the boys’ misadventures and conversations, the viewer learns about each character’s personality. Gordie’s talent for storytelling pegs him as the most likely of the four to have a promising future.

The film also contrasts a gang of bullies called the "Cobras," who are led by local hood John "Ace" Merrill (Kiefer Sutherland). Crucial to the story are the often sophomoric interpersonal exchanges among the four main characters.[1] The boys find the body in the end, but decide to leave it to the authorities to deal with. They also refuse to allow Ace to take the body away after Gordie threatens him with a gun.

The film ends with the boys returning home to Castle Rock and saying goodbye to each other. The Writer states that Vern later married and became a fork-lift operator for a lumber company in Castle Rock and Teddy tried to join the military, but due to poor eyesight and his ear they refused to let him in, he eventually served jail time and now he was doing odd-jobs around Castle Rock. Chris later moved out of Castle Rock and became a lawyer. However, The Writer reveals that Chris was recently stabbed and killed when he tried to break up a fight in a line at a fast food place. The Writer then finishes his memoir and takes his kid and his friend out swimming.

Was the movie Mirrors good?

People are telling me its bad and I shouldnt watch it.
Is it not as scary as it seems?

i will ask this once more? is kiefer sutherland an alcoholic who needs help? before booze kills him?


Just another recipient of nepotism whose father was rich and famous. Kiefer Sutherland can blow all of his chances and I wouldn’t give a tiny god damn.

Is there something funny about conservative TV character Jack Bauer?

Not only is Kiefer Sutherland a Canadian(and alcoholic), but his grandfather Tommy Douglas is considered the father of Canadian universal health care(called Medicare)! Tommy Douglas was also voted The Greatest Canadian in a survey by the CBC.
I think it is a socialist plot to destroy America, I believe Glenn Beck agrees. What do cons think?
I know he is a character on the TV show…..BUT DOESN’T THAT MAKE THE DECEPTION EVEN MORE DEEP AND DANGEROUS? You guys think I am insane….I find it interesting I am the only person who has noticed this……lmao.

See more proof that libs have no sense of reality!!! It’s a tv show sport!!!!
